End-of-Year Appeal Letter Writing Clinic

A LIVE and interactive online clinic from JCamp 180

On Tuesday, October 15, JCamp 180 Mentors Julia Riseman and Dan Kirsch and Technology Program Manager Kevin Martone led a live and interactive presentation on writing appeal letters that inspire greater giving and a deeper fondness for your Jewish Camp. They shared basic tricks of the trade and provided an understanding of how your letter will be read and acted on (or not).

The presentation portion of the Webinar is ~16 minutes long, with another 30 minutes of lively Q&A with the live participants.

This clinic covered:

  • Proven practices for appeal letters that raise more money
  • Mistakes to avoid at all costs
  • Inspiration to get you started
